“GREAT "To Go" Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

About 12 years ago we followed some locals advice and found our way here. So glad we did! Sometimes we just like to get a chicken and ribs to go and sit on the terrace and eat there. The roasted chicens is also sons and hubbys favorite food when they go fishing.

“Worth the trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We asked in the hotel where they would go for dinner that was not a tourist place and were sent here. We had a great meal and a relaxing time. The food was very good and our waiter was very friendly. We stopped back by 2 days later and he remembered what we all had to drink as soon as we sat down.

The prices can not be beat and it was worth the stop. If you are looking for a good meal in town, make sure to stop by as you will not be disappointed. The Mexican combo is very filling. Just watch the green sauce. It has a little kick to it.

“Pleasantly Surprised!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We were on our last night in Cabo, asked our door man at the Villa where we should go for dinner, he told the taxi to take us here! We were a bit apprehensive upon arriving, but are so glad we went in. This was probably one of the BEST meals we had in Cabo. The food was great, the service was great and the price, you cannot beat it. We were a group of 5, we had 2 rounds of beers and each of us had a full meal - all for $52 american dollars! The chicken/rib combo was superb, the chicken burritos were AWESOME, we are very happy to have found this and would certainly send more people there. Thanks!

“Great for cheap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

I can't believe how much food we got for 180 pecos or around 16 dollars. 1 beer 1 water, 2 geat sized dishes we could hardly finish, great taste, would highly recommend if your trying to save some money and eat delicious food

“Great value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Just a little away from the main thoroughfare, and worth the short walk. Classic Mexican food at great prices.
Entrees came with a choice of sauces and the food comes fast!
